A Man After God's Own Heart
David was a little shepherd boy who grew up in a dysfunctional family. His brothers did not like him much and his father didn't think all that much of him either. At least he wasn't going to mention him to Samuel when the prophet was sent to his house to anoint the next King of Israel.
King David was an adulterer, a murderer, a lousy husband and an over indulgent, yet unconcerned father. But he was also a shepherd, a war hero, an inventor, a worshipper, a giver, a building designer, a true friend, a song writer and a musician.
Can I Be A Woman After God's Own Heart?
David was a man after God's own heart because when he failed he repented and turned back to God. Read Psalm 51. I love the fact that this man who failed grievously could still be called a man after God's own heart. That is good news for ME! I want to honor and please the Lord and yet sometimes I fail in my Christian walk of life. All I need to do is "seek His face."
